AquaBLAST, the Aqua-Gym in a Bag
AquaBLAST® in Action
Boxing Meets Water!
AquaBLAST® is a water-filled punching and exercise bag for swimming pools and swim spas. It's the fun way to get a low-impact, high-intensity workout using the therapeutic benefits of water resistance.
AquaBLAST® holds 6 gallons of pool water - that's about 50 pounds - but the bag floats weightlessly under the water surface. You can feel the volume of water inside the bag as resistance and drag act against the device.
The outer walls are soft and flexible and perfect for punching, kicking, mixed martial arts and boxing workouts, or low impact pushing and pulling exercises.
Unlike most aquatic devices, AquaBLAST® uses swimming pool water and floats just under the surface of your swimming pool, placing it in a perfect position for punching.
You know you’ve hit the sweet spot when you feel and hear a good THUMP after planting your foot.
AquaBLAST® is a full contact kickboxing bag that lets you land amazing ninja kicks as you go horizontal in the water. Get a high intensity workout with plenty of resistance against your legs. AquaBLAST is ideal for swimming pools and also for swim spas that use a current.
When lifted above the water surface you can feel the weight of water as gravity kicks in. That's because AquaBLAST® is filled with about 50 pounds of water.
Lift AquaBLAST® partially or fully out of the water. You can control the precise amount of weight and resistance in your workout.
AquaBLAST® is like a crazy fun medicine ball. It's filled with about 6 gallons of water, so you are pushing the weight of 50 pounds of water. Each time you push it, the forces of water resistance, drag and the weight of the water act against the bag providing a workout unlike any other aquatic device. The harder you push AquaBLAST, the more resistance you get.
AquaBLAST® sets up in less than a minute using about 6 gallons of swimming pool water; when finished, drain the pool water and place it in the carry case and you are off to your next destination.
AquaBLAST® travels well. It fits in a convenient carry bag and is portable enough to take on vacation, to the pool, or fitness center, or anywhere there's a swimming pool or swim spa.
What the experts are saying about AquaBLAST®...

"As a therapist working with a diverse patient population, I love products that allow you to think outside of the box and adapt to your progressing patient. More than just a punching bag, I use the AquaBlast to allow patients to work on core stabilization with pushing, pulling, dragging lifting and even throwing. Be it pain patients or the geriatric population, being able to increase their force without pain is always met with excitement."
Angie Proctor, AEA Executive Director, www.aeawave.org
"I really did like it and it could definitely provide a great workout for home pools, circuit training, interval and sport specific/speed training. As a tool in Aquatic personal training or small group and group exercise circuits, it could have benefits."
Ruth Sova President at the Aquatic Therapy & Rehabilitation Institute www.atri.org
"By adding water only (no air) the device is neutrally buoyant and provides an opportunity for some skills needed by many clients."
"I felt that it could be used well for a Big and Loud program for Parkinson’s, osteopenia, and weak clients."
"You have certainly put a lot of time and effort into this product and I think it could be a positive force in aquatics."
Dr. Mary O. Wykle, PhDMW Associates | https://mwaquatics.com
"The Aqua BLAST bag will become an important piece of equipment in aquatic therapy with specific exercises and a tremendous challenge for our military as a way to cross train."
